Wikipedia Rep Bob Goodlatte: Not a Republican but a Hypocrite

Virginia Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) is a special guy on Wikipedia with a special political afffiliation as a “hypocrite.” In the space where Goodlatte’s political party would normally show “Republican,” the word “hypocrite” appears in red lettering. My screenshot from about 2;15 pm CDT, February 18, 2013 is below. More on Goodlatte here in a story about SCOTUS staffers hiding documents and pleadings from Justices as well as removing cases from the docket. See the Wikipedia page here.

    I’m shocked! It actually reads the way it’s suppose too now.

    Wikipedia has never been a legitimate source for “correct/factual information”, anyone who uses it should beware. There are too many agenda driven people access to the pages that make their own changes, that fit their ideology, which is heavily weighted towards libs.

    Geo, I tweeted both Wiki and the Congressman. By midnight, the Wiki page had been changed. They are not reliable, but they are generally a good source for info on Congress regarding when someone took office, and what district they service. I bet if we check every Republican’s congressional page on Wiki we might find others. If they are smart, they’re doing the checking themselves.
